Family Guy is a popular and long-running animated series that debuted on FOX in 1999. It follows the adventures of the Griffin family, whose members include Peter, Lois, Stewie, Meg, Chris, and Brian the talking dog. While many of the episodes are beloved by fans, there are some that are considered to be the worst. In this article, we will take a look at the Family Guy episodes ranked as the least popular and discuss why they are considered to be the worst.
The worst episodes of Family Guy often feature jokes that don't land, characters behaving out of character, and storylines that don't make sense. For example, in the episode "Emission Impossible," Peter is accidentally frozen in carbonite, and the resulting plot twist is considered too outlandish even for this zany show.
In addition to episodes that feel too far-fetched, there are also those that are considered to be too offensive. For example, "Baby Not On Board" features a joke about Down Syndrome that many viewers found to be insensitive and in poor taste.
